Hi,

I stumbled across this bug here
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-37728010

Canonical are aware of it -
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1633547/+activity

First thing I did was quit all my programmes, ran Software Updater and
rebooted. However, my Kernel wasn't updated (I used the command uname -a to
check for this). When will the updated Kernel be available from the
software updates?

BW,


Ian
